The Nige­ria Im­mi­gra­tion Ser­vice (NIS) has pro­moted 126 of­fi­cers in Nasarawa State.

State Comptrolle­r, Ha­jiya Zainab Lawal, said dur­ing the dec­o­ra­tion cer­e­mony in Lafia that 126 of­fi­cers had been pro­moted and dec­o­rated, which is the third dec­o­ra­tion cer­e­mony in the state com­mand un­der her watch.

Ac­cord­ing to her, all of­fi­cers un­der her com­mand who sat for the pro­mo­tion ex­am­i­na­tion passed and have been pro­moted. Three quar­ters of them are in­di­genes of the state.

Ha­jiya Zainab said since her as­sump­tion of of­fice, she has fast tracked the is­suance of im­mi­gra­tion fa­cil­i­ties in a plain and trans­par­ent man­ner in line with the fed­eral gov­ern­ment's pol­icy of ease of do­ing busi­ness.

The com­mand has em­barked on strict mon­i­tor­ing of the ac­tiv­i­ties of for­eign­ers and com­pa­nies in the state.

She said it has also been par­tic­i­pat­ing in sev­eral op­er­a­tions aimed at con­tain­ing crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties like Op­er­a­tion Egwu Eke III and Ayem Ak­pa­tuma II among oth­ers.

She ex­pressed grat­i­tude to the Comptrolle­r Gen­eral of the Ser­vice, Mo­hammed Ba­band­ede, and mem­bers of the board for ap­prov­ing the pro­mo­tions.
